Hi all,
I just purchased a 2019 MacBookPro (Catalina) and all went well transferring data and apps.
Each time I open LR Classic Ver 9.3, I receive this message which I have not see before. See attached screenshot.
Thanks in advance,
Bob

Most likely the destination for your mobile downloads is reset to the Users folder. Lightroom does not (and should not) have permission to write to that folder however, so you should change this in Preferences - Lightroom Sync.

With the release of Catalina, Apple boosted the security of files and folders. This is most likely the cause of the warning message. Correct you’re security permissions to allow the app to have the access it needs to the folders.

As Johan says, moving the folder inside the Pictures folder would be advised.
